威廉·斯托顿(William Stoughton)（1631 - 1701年7月7日）是马萨诸塞湾殖民地行政管理官及和裁判官。圣殿骑士团的一员，他负责审判塞勒姆审巫案的。1892年他与塞缪尔·帕里斯密切合作，他作为一个刽子手。
Having discovered that the Assassins Tom Stoddard and Jennifer Querry had come to Salem to hunt for a precursor artifact, Stoughton encouraged the Salem townsfolk to hunt and kill the Assassins, an idea that Parris objected.
They eventually caught up to the Assassins in a swamp and Stoughton let the injured Querry go so that they could follow her to Stoddard and Dorothy's location. Stoddard, thinking that Jennifer was a traitor, attacked her. Stoughton took this opportunity to assault Stoddard and tied the trio up.
